Physicians, clinicians and staff members of Baylor Scott & White-Pflugerville gathered at the Courtyard Marriott in Pflugerville Nov. 15 to build bicycles for area children in need.
The project was in coordination with Project Hope, an organization which supports families undergoing economic hardship or that have lost their homes, according to a release from Baylor Scott & White Health.
Staff members assembled 24 bicycles as a team-building event ahead of the hospital’s opening Dec. 1. They then presented the bicycles to families and children at Baylor-Scoot & White-Pflugerville later that evening.
“We chose this activity because we want to give back to Pflugerville,” Richard Peters, director of operations at Baylor-Scott & White Medical Center-Pflugerville said at the Nov. 15 event. “We didn’t want to just come in and offer jobs and treat people—we really want to make the community better.”
An integrated clinic connected to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Pflugerville opened at the beginning of October. That clinic features more than a dozen total physicians for treatment of orthopedics, general surgery, OB-GYN services and more.
